    I wonder when a computer will be able to troll as well as I can. Then I can retire.

    In case anyone missed the recent uproar over Tay, here is a sample of what happened.

    Honestly i have no issues with fast food workers going extinct, its natures method of removing the useless from the planet. We have as a species gone way too soft. If you can't be a benfit - at least ensure your own survival what use are you to the species?

    I agree fully - the useless buggers who eat at McD's should be given the opportunity to gorge themselves to death on that swill at a minimal cost.

    In fairness, EU rules may require that McDonalds use better quality foodstuffs than what we get in the USA. Our shakes (the last time I tried one) had a chemical aftertaste that I found unpleasant.

    Must be that's why there hasn't been more info about it.
    I thought you posted it as a belated April Fool's Joke. The MANY references and direct quotes from the movie "Office Space" should have been a dead giveaway for anyone reading it.

    This is what all these crybabies get for demanding an increase in the minimum wage. There should be NO minimum wage.
    No, they would force suppliers to provide in preloaded magazines.

    Things will definitely head toward robots......5 questions though #1 will they program the robot to completely ignore me while it "talks" on a cell phone about useless crap? #2 Will they program it to screw up the simplest order occasionally just so that us oldsters can have the feeling of human interaction? #3 Will this make it easier or harder for them to steal my card number and buy car parts on Amazon? #4 Will there be a "manager" robot yelling at the other robots "Queso.....that was a Queso burger".....like my last visit to one of those places? #5....will it be able to make change without using its "fingers"?

    If a general nationwide rule of $15.00 per hour is mandated, you will be seeing a lot fewer workers and a lot more robots. In any case, the public will pay more when a larger minimum wage is required.

    Dead giveaway to anyone that watches TV or movies.
    I haven't watched TV....... AT ALL in 6+ years, minimal for 10 years. Never heard of that movie.

    Computers trolls are more polite, so your position is secure.
